How can a micro-credential benefit Oklahomans?
Employers and recruiters are looking for applicants who can demonstrate their ability to apply knowledge and skills in real-world settings. In fact, nearly all employers in a Hart Research survey (95%) indicated they gave hiring preference to college graduates with beyond-major skills that will enable them to contribute to innovation in the workplace.
Employers agree that having both field-specific knowledge and skills and a broad range of skills and knowledge is the most important for long-term success. Micro-credentials quickly establish that you have marketable skills, competencies and experiences.
Stand out and be recognized!
All micro-credentials meet quality standards at the institution where they are offered. Whether it is embedded in your current degree or certificate program or a unique learning experience tailored to a specific career goal or learning objective, you will have access to faculty expertise, resources and support.
Oklahoma colleges and universities may either offer micro-credentials independently or have them endorsed by the Oklahoma State Regents for Higher Education.
